Changing the shape of the video
I'd like to be able to have a circle tool available to change the shape of the video. Currently Camtasia has this feature for Mac users, but not pc users. How come? Do you like mac users better? LOL! I hope not. Anyhoo...

You can see the effect in this video at about the 90 second mark

This is a neat idea! I like it.  In the meantime, you could achieve the same affect doing something similar to this in my training video, simply not adding the animation.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i-L2fsKRQbo

Your idea would be nice to have. Till then/if ever...

If you  have or can use Powerpoint anything is possible.

I believe from Powerpoint 2010 to present can do video

This was done in Powerpoint 2016



Per your video example,  you could take the webcam (picture in picture) video
in to Powerpoint and edit it to a shape,  export it out as a video, and input it back
in to Camtasia and place it where you want on the canvas.

You just have to do a little "greenscreen" technique to use it in Camtasia which is easy.
